Re: What are the best covers of Dead songs on the archive?
no, tho they're tryin', as with this cover of St. Stephen:
Max Creek does a bit better at this show covering St. Stephen:
Maybe it's the vocals that don't vary in tone, they're really tryin' but it doesn't quite get there.
Now, if we can take this way back to the earliest examples of bands who covered or were strongly influenced by Grateful Dead songs...
how about some recommended late '60s - early '70s bands?
Note, these aren't live or on archive but are worth seeking out for serious students.
I'll provide at least one link to a complete track, an interesting example of one that sounds very much inspired by St. Stephen (listen to the lead guitar break):
Wizards from Kansas doing "Country Dawn" (1970)- http://www.myspace.com/reelscarce

And these GD-inspired bands... here's a link to a bunch of 'em, from a previous thread (to save space on this one!) --
